Revisions to the Mini Countryman have been revealed at the New York International Auto Show this week, with subtle exterior revisions and improvements to the engines aimed at fuel economy and emissions.

The grille has been revised, while ALL4 all-wheel-drive equipped models now benefit from under-guards to the front and rear.

Two new colours have been added – Jungle Green and Midnight Grey – while Starlight Blue becomes available on the Countryman for the first time.

The range of alloy wheel designs have been updated, while LED fog lights and running lights also make an appearance.

Inside, some of the displays and controls have been updated, with anthracite-coloured tacho and speedo dials, plus chrome trim for the ventilation controls.

Under the bonnet, all engines meet EU6 emissions regulations, with the biggest changes reserved for the Cooper S Countryman: power has been increased to 190hp, resulting in a 0.1 second drop in the 0-62mph time (to 7.5 seconds), while combined cycle economy improves to 47.1 mpg and CO2 emissions fall by 3% to 139 g/km.

The new Mini Countryman will be available to order in late spring, with prices starting from £16,990.
